Episode 3 – Andrew Carnegie

In today’s class, you’ll watch the third episode of “The Men Who Built America”.   This episode focuses on the Carnegie Steel company and his later philanthropy.

Carnegie’s familiy immigrated to Pittsburgh when he was a boy.  He started his first job at $1 a week.  He was a quick learner and was impressive to his employers.  During his life, through a combination of hard work and knowing the right people, he turned a $500 loan into a net worth of $50 billion during his lifetime.

While you watch the episode, you’ll take notes (on paper) of information that catches your attention or you find interesting.  After the episode is over, you’ll transfer your notes to a new blog post.
